    Mondays @ 1:30PM

    The Black & White Special Interest Group is a weekly meeting of those club members who enjoy the special qualities of black & white (or more generally called “monochrome”) photography. Members bring their images for viewing and comments by the group.  Discussions on editing techniques, as well as on composition and lighting are also a part of the meeting.
    The question might be asked “Why are we interested in black and white images when even the basic point and shoot digital cameras can produce very good color photographs?”  The answer is: there are some images which have more visual impact when rendered in black and white.  These images are those which use the interplay between light and shadows to emphasize texture or shapes within the composition. An example is shown below
    Typically, the photographs shown at our SIG have been produced as color images in a digital camera and converted to black and white using one or more of the popular photo editing software packages.

    John Scott - December Speaker Series

    John is an Old West entertainer and living historian. He is owner of Arizona Ghostriders, an award-winning 1880’s performance group.

    He attended the New School in New York City for computer graphics and is familiar with Photoshop, which he uses to adjust and prepare photos for the videos on the group’s YouTube channel. For a look at one of John's videos, click HERE.

    When not getting shot with blank guns and dying in the street, John is the general manager of Simutek, an Apple Premier Partner located in Tucson.

    John will show us some of his techniques including:
    • Using the Ken Burns effect in Final Cut Pro which is really a pan and zoom shot. I use these for a slideshow that gives the appearance of a moving image. Adding the right music and setting it up like a story makes it almost cinematic.

    • LUTs (Look Up Tables)
      Using mathematical formulas for color grading an image. For instance, I wanted a look that was like the new television series Westworld, where some colors look desaturated and there is a slight yellow cast. (I’ll show an example). Peter McKinnon, who creates and uses LUTs for his photography, has a YouTube channel.

    • How I get the most out of a smartphone camera with the help of 3rd party Apps.

    • My weekly use of a green screen and important lighting tips for it.

    San Xavier Mission Tour

    Last day to buy tickets will be December 8, 2017. A donation of $5 per person to the Patronato toward its on-going restoration efforts would be greatly appreciated.

    A National Historic Landmark, San Xavier Mission, also known as the White Dove of the Desert, was established in 1692 by Father Eusebio Francisco Kino, founder of the chain of Spanish missions in the Sonoran Desert. A Jesuit of Italian descent, he often visited and preached in the area, then the Pimería Alta colonial territory of the Viceroyalty of New Spain. Construction of the first mission church, about two miles (3 km) from the site of today's Mission, began on April 28, 1700. Construction of the current church began in 1783 and was completed in 1797. The oldest intact European structure in Arizona, the church's interior is filled with marvelous original statuary and mural paintings. It is a place where visitors can truly step back in time and enter an authentic 18th Century space. The church retains its original purpose of ministering to the religious needs of its parishioners. A gift shop is available for souvenirs or to purchase a candle to light. There is also a museum.

    We will receive a guided tour by the Mission's volunteer staff. There is a virtual tour on the website which is recommended before visiting. http://www.sanxaviermission.org/

    Meet at the Camera Club at 1 PM, and depart at 1:15 PM. Carol Gautsch will be the trip leader. For questions, contact Carol at 520-347-4917 home; 406-850-2742 cell; bratcat08@gmail.com

    Guy Atchley - February Speaker Series

    Guy Atchley has served for more than 30 years as anchor at KGUN 9 TV in Tucson.  During his tenure Guy has traveled all over the state for his series Guy Atchley's Arizona.   Along the way Guy swept the Arizona AP awards one year by winning three first-place honors including: Best Serious Feature, Best Light Feature, and Best General Reporting in the State.  Guy also was honored for his reports on living conditions in China, and -- for his reporting on the Middle East -- Guy earned the Human Relations Award from the Jewish Community Relations Council.  You may have seen Guy's cameos in several movies: "Jericho Fever," which was produced for the USA Cable Network, the remake of "Vanishing Point" for Fox TV, and the independent film "Runnin' at Midnite."  And in case you're wondering, Guy played the role of a reporter in each film.  Guy remains appreciative to KGUN 9 for allowing him to seek out the positive stories in the Grand Canyon state.   And today he continues that calling with his photography, which now closes out each newscast on KGUN 9.

    ASARCO Mine Tour

    Tour an Open-Pit Copper Mine and the Process of Making Copper - Trip price $11

    The first stop on your tour is the Open-Pit Viewpoint on the south rim of the Mission Mine. The viewpoint is securely fenced for your safety, and it has four binocular telescopes to provide a close-up view of the trucks and shovels working in the mine. Each year the mine has the capacity to process about 260,000 tons of copper concentrates which yields 132,700,000 pounds of copper and 1,234,000 ounces of silver. Copper ore is ground into a powder so the copper minerals can be separated by the froth flotation process. One of the AMDC staff members will explain what happens at the mill and answer your questions.

    Valley of the Moon Park Tour

    Trip Cost $6 - Last Day to Register is 3/2/18

    This is listed on a number of “must visit” sites in Tucson because of its uniqueness. “The idea for Valley of the Moon came after George Phar Ledger went to visit a terminally ill 14-year-old girl, the daughter of the local clergyman, who was dying of tuberculosis. George decided that the girl needed something to spark her imagination so outside her bedroom window he created a miniature cement mountain scene, complete with a lake made from a washtub and a waterfall. The "lake" held fish and water plants and there was a little path leading to a ladder up the side of the "mountain." The waterfall was made by filling a reservoir at the top of the mountain, which would run back down into the lake. “In 1975 Valley the Moon was listed on the Arizona Historic Places Register. Valley of the Moon was officially placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2011. On George's 97th birthday, then-Mayor Lew Murphy presented him with the Tucson Outstanding Citizen Award for the creation of Valley of the Moon and his devotion to the free entertainment of Tucson's children… In 2015 Valley of the Moon was declared a Tucson Historic Landmark by the Mayor and Council.”
